Blessed to live in a world with Mike Judge.

Man, he is such a gem. Razor-sharp southern-wit.
I just found out that he's Ecuadorian, but raised in New Mexico, as a little tidbit.

u/Beginning_Draft9092 Jun 12 '21

A shame he's buddies with Alex Jones though.....

u/junkyardclown Jun 12 '21

You're friend shaming

u/slowwburnn Jun 13 '21

I think he's Alex Jones shaming, which is fine

I'd much rather hang out with MJ and AJ than average redditors with their never ending struggle sessions.

I would much rather eat a well done stake than hang out with alex jones

This is actually common where a person's singing voice is radically different from the talking voice.

u/CardJackArrest Jun 12 '21

Knew a guy who couldn't speak three words without stuttering horribly, yet on a theater stage or while singing he didn't stutter once.

Ozzy Osbourne?

u/Hypranormal Jun 13 '21

Legit though, Scatman John had a stutter and scatting helped him deal with it.

u/thisisntus997 Jun 13 '21

That's why I said it lmao, he wrote a whole song about that entire thing

u/beerdude26 Jun 12 '21

Literally different parts of the brain are used

6

u/DeathMonkey6969 Jun 12 '21

That's because the person doesn't have to think about what they are going to say next so that bypasses the part of the brain that causes the stutter.

There are also some people that if they are talking on a land line phone with it's slight feedback delay inhibits the stutter.

u/cyclicamp Jun 12 '21

It also works if there isn’t a script, just talking in a forced accent of some sort reduces or removes it in some cases (temporarily). The theory is that the brain is forced to work differently to speak in an unusual way.

u/planetpuddingbrains Jun 12 '21

Ozzy Osborne is the perfect example. He approaches incoherence at times during regular speech, but he's perfect when he's singing.

15

u/BVarc Jun 12 '21

Actually, that was a phase of his life where he was being over subscribed drugs from his doctor. Check out this recent(ish) interview where he talks about his Parkinson’s diagnosis, he speaks far more clearly than his reality tv days.

Ozzie

You've been subscribed to Ozzy Facts. Did you know that he once bit the head off a live bat on-stage during a concert?

u/Carnae_Assada Jun 13 '21

Of topic but reminds me of working security at my local mall.

Sunglasses were seen as a suspicion for my shift as it was 10pm-6am, so I see a young male maybe 15-16 around the movie theater who keeps looking over his shoulder.

I ask why he has his sunglasses on and if the florescent were hard on his eyes, he tells me they're subscription, so I ask him if he gets a new pair every month or quarterly and he gets super confused and walks away.

I'm sure he ment prescription, and he probably lost/broke his glasses but it still makes me laugh to this day.

u/joshhupp Jun 12 '21

Pretty much all UK singers (The Beatles, U2, The Cure, etc.)

u/PokebannedGo Jun 12 '21

Jim Nabors is a good example

3

u/Crash4654 Jun 12 '21

I wanna say Adele is a good example. She sounds Cockney in speech but in singing is very clear and concise.

1

u/color_thine_fate Jun 12 '21

I remember being floored when I would listen to Scott Stapp of Creed growl and grunt like an ultra masculine lion man in his songs, and then in an interview he sounded like a 15 year old choir boy. That day I fully separated singing voices from speaking voices, so nothing really surprises me anymore

You left out the part where Bobby pickups the jug and gets yelled At it’s the best part

u/boygriv Jun 12 '21

The fact that it's not a good jar for storage and is visibly empty make it that much sweeter.

It's the jug he keeps things in

This episode and his part of the volunteer firefighter are my favorite boomhauer moments. I love that, in his head, he is the only one that speaks clearly, and everybody else talks funny

1

u/TestShock Jun 13 '21

The Firefighter episodes is one of my favourites - great slapstick.

Id like someone to look at me like hank looks at boomhauer

u/shackleford1917 Jun 12 '21

I never want anyone to look at me the way that Bill looks at Peggy.

Here is what he would sound like if he spoke normally.

Mel Tillis was this way.

Yeah, unless I'm mistaken this is a Mel Tillis reference.

u/DRACULA_WOLFMAN Jun 12 '21

Just like Ozzy Osbourne. I can understand every word when he's singing, but the moment the man starts talking it's indecipherable.

u/NocturnalVomitorium Jun 12 '21

That texas ranger can sing

7

u/gordo65 Jun 12 '21

Boomhauer does not have a speech impediment. The reason he's incoherent is because he speaks quickly, doesn't use complete sentences, and throws in a bunch of extra words when he talks. Of course none of that is an issue when he's singing.

2

u/AND_THE_L0RD_SAID Jun 12 '21

It's the same as how the British sound American when they sing.

u/Jim_Carr_laughing Jun 12 '21

The Beatles sound British as all hell when they sing.

Eleanor Rigby sounds British AF
